In life, my role model is my mother. She has taught me how to stand up for myself, in a world where women are often told to not have an opinion and be in the background of successful men.

In fashion, it would definitely be Stella McCartney. She is a strong and intelligent businesswoman in a field dominated by men, standing for what she believes in. She is also changing an industry that has not changed in a while.

Sex and the City – Every girl can relate to the friendship they have with each other.
